MUSIC YEAR 7 CHARITY

MUSIC YEAR 7 CHARITY CHRISTMAS CONCERT AND JUNIOR JAZZ BAND PERFORMANCE Our Y7s and the Junior Jazz Band took part in a Charity Christmas Concert which raised an impressive £330 for the Bromley Charity ‘Latch’. There were many incredible performances including the whole choir songs and very musical soloists. It was wonderful to see so many people in the audience clearly enjoying the evening. 29

SUNSET BOULEVARD AT THE CHURCHILL THEATRE Four of our sixth form students had the opportunity to take part in a production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Sunset Boulevard at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley. Musically directed by Caroline Daniel our Director of Music, Victoria Cheung, Emily Pugh and Summer Zhang played in the orchestral pit alongside professional players, many of whom trained at the Royal Academy and Royal College of Music. Charlotte Baker joined the team of stage crew and has been invited back in May for a production of Legally Blonde. MIDDLE SCHOOL MUSIC TOUR CHARITY CAROL SINGING IN BROMLEY On Wednesday 9th December a group of our musicians spend two hours in Intu Bromley singing and playing Christmas Carols to raise money for Childaid. It was lovely to see several parents and staff supporting the event and we are very proud to have raised £380 for this very worthwhile cause.

On Tuesday Ms Daniel and I travelled to the school and the day commenced with a lunch and a chance to meet all the other competitors. We then had a rehearsal of a composition commissioned especially for us girls, ‘Per Aspera Ad Astra’ (through difficulties to the stars) by Grace-Evangeline Mason, GDST alumna and winner of the BBC Young Composer of the Year 2013. Next were the vocal heats which were lovely to sit and listen to, all the vocalists had amazing voices and I could tell that the competition was going to be very challenging! The following day consisted of the instrumental heats, I was the last participant and so listening to everyone perform before me made me even more nervous! I played two 21st century pieces on my saxophone including Rhapsody by Toshio Mashima and Adagio and Allegro by Leonardo Vinci. After another composition rehearsal, the four finalists were announced - unfortunately I did not get through, though I was still able to perform in the concert in the composition. The concert was at St John’s Smith Square, Westminster and was an absolutely beautiful church and I’m so pleased that I got to perform there - the space made each finalist and the composition sound even more incredible. It was a wonderful concert and opportunity to have taken part in and I am so pleased that I was able to meet such lovely and talented girls from all over country.
